About the Course:
UC Berkeley students will serve as Ambassadors for Fruitful Minds, a nutrition education program aimed at local urban youth, ages 9 to 14, to address childhood obesity. Students will prepare for and teach a nutrition education class series to area youth at a site and time to be determined by the needs of the Fruitful Minds program. The course time commitment will include a one and a half hour weekly review and preparation session to be held on campus and a one hour fieldwork session at a local school or after school program. Fieldwork sites will most likely be located in Oakland and/or Berkeley. Topics to be covered include a review of the Fruitful Minds curriculum as well as teaching strategies, program evaluation tools, and youth engagement. Additional assignments will enhance student contributions to weekly preparation sessions and improve knowledge of current nutrition issues. Students should have a basic understanding or a strong interest in food and nutrition. Previous teaching experiences will be helpful, but are not necessary.
